A simple collection of 13 no incoming call global mods.

Affected

1. Random sim-to-sim calls (Christianlov_NoIncomingCall.package) - It makes the phone line controller to idle forever, preventing it from generating random calls.

2. Sim call (Christianlov_NoIncomingCall_SimCall.package) - It will produce almost same result with #1. However, in TS2 base game, you will need this instead of #1.

From here, I actually have seen not all of these calls in my game, so I will attach the dialog string which is used by each call object. It's possible that some of these call objects are not actually implemented in the game.

3. Bad report card - "You, Yes you behind the bikesheds! I Am your Headmaster, MR. MONSTER and your grades are a mess. Fix 'em quick or you will grow up to be a hill of beans. And also, don't think you can get off easy by not telling your parents I called. I will come to your house and I will trash your room and will eat all of your sugary cereal! Then I'll buy some more cereal, or wait, I'LL BUY THE WHOLE STORE OUT, and will eat it all on your front lawn while you're inside with your malt o'meal, super sorry you ever failed calculus. Also, I will forbid any student or teacher at the school to call you anything but Monsieur Marcel Duncechamp from now on. How do you like me now?"

4. Boss visit - "$Neighbor's boss is interested in coming over for dinner. Hope you're in the mood for entertaining. It could be a good career move."

5. Enagagement scenario - "What's going on? I thought the relationship between $NeighborLocal:0 and $NeighborLocal:1 was going so well. Is there going to be a wedding soon?"

6. Grandchild scenario - "Hi there, dearie. Isn't it about time we had a grandchild to spoil?"

7. Job warning - "$Object missed work today, and unfortunately, has been fired."

8. Low relationship - "Hey, $NeighborLocal:3, are we still friends? I never hear from you anymore, so I figured I'd check in to see what was going on. Would it kill you to make an effort every once in a while?"

9. Sneak out - "Hey $Me, wanna sneak out with me tonight?"

10. Contact (NL) - "Hi, I'm $Neighbor! Since my friend $NeighborLocal:1 had such a great time with you the other day, I thought I'd see if you wanted to go Downtown?"

11. Downtown (NL) - "Hey, I found some new places to hang out at $NeighborhoodLocal:0! Do you want to meet me there?"

12. Hobby level 2 (FT) - "Hello! I hear that you are learning about Arts & Crafts! I wanted to let you know that My Muse II - Art Studio is looking for enthusiastic new members. It's a great place to learn more about Arts & Crafts. If you continue to get better you may receive a membership card. Keep up the good work!"

13. Hobby magazine subscription (FT) - "If you would like to subscribe at a later time please feel free to give us a call.", "Hello! You have been selected to try out our new magazine. Would you like to subscribe to the Arts and Crafts magazine?"

Notice

1. This will affect only incoming calls. Outgoing calls won't be affected.
2. I hope this will be compatiable with all versions, but I am not sure yet. Tested in TS2 base game and Free Time.
3. These hacks don't depend on each other, so you can safely remove hacks you don't need from the 13 hacks included in the zip file.

Someone please answer.

What is the boss scenario? I've never accessed it before. Is this and the bad report card, engagement, and grandchild scenario all left over, disabled, and unused, or can I access it. Can I enable them?

Thank you so much! I'm quite sure I would go insane if I had to endure any more of those hobby calls...

I've played this game extensively since the day it came out, and I have NEVER EVER seen the following:

boss visit
engagement call
grandchild scenario
in-coming sneak out call

Do these actually exist? I would actually like to have them in my game

One question about this...does this affect the call that comes right after a Sim publishes a novel (the call giving them the royalties payment)? I've noticed that if I miss that phone call, they don't get their book sales money.

I agree! I'd love to enable them, I'd definitely have a chuckle at the headmaster call if I ever got it. XD I've never got any of those except the downtown and low relationship ones. The low relationship one I don't get anymore thanks to a phone hack I got at MATY though, because it just got annoying. But the others I'd love to have!

Thanks for this! Those random calls are so annoying. I especially appreciate the fact that you made separate modules for the different calls so that we can pick and choose the ones we do and do not want to suppress.

If I forgot to thank you for this before, I'll do it now. I really hated when random people would invite me downtown or invitations to subscribe to a magazine my sim reads for like, two seconds and then throws out. The hacks worked really well, so thank you! :3

OMG thank you so much. I can deal with all the random calls but those hobby calls nearly drove me crazy. Its so quiet in my hood now. There is a very evil EA/Maxis employee who thought that crap up.
